Marvell - The New Hope

The new Marvell controller came to my attention when a forum post was added to TweakTown's forums. Little is known about this SATA 3.0 controller other than they do exist and in enough quantity that we are getting random forum posts leaking information. So far this is what we have.

 

• SATA 6Gb/s Interface
• 294MB/s Average Read Speeds on the Leaked Hardware in HD Tach
• Labeled MARVELL SD88SA024SA0 SUN
• Leaked SSD HDD Capacity was 34GB

 

After I wrote this section of this article, both OCZ and Micron announced they would both be showing solid state drives based on the new Marvell controller at CES. Micron has since released a video on YouTube that shows their version, the RealSSD C300 in action.

 

 

One thing that we are most excited about is the fact that hardware is already in existence and that we are actually seeing it, even though we have yet to touch it. Our day will come, more specifically on January 5 2010 when we will definitely have some real world performance numbers and if at all possible someone will ensure a sample hits our labs prior to our flight to Las Vegas.
